A brief description of the IPM plan(s) :

There is no set IPM plan on campus; pest control problems (which occur very rarely) are dealt with on a case-by-case basis. If possible, no action is taken and the pests are left to run their course. However, when problems do arise they are dealt with in a manner consistent with the U.S. EPA's IPM criteria. Every effort is made to choose the least harmful, most targeted control method. For example, the campus gardens had an army worm infestation last year which they addressed using a mixture of dish soap and water.
